Anne Frank House
Containing the preserved warehouse offices, annexe and a modern extension, students can visit the rooms where the Frank family hid for over two years and where Anne wrote her diary. The modern extension houses exhibitions on those hiding in the annexe and on the wider story of the fate of Europe’s Jewish population, as well as displays seeking to link these themes to contemporary issues relating to persecution and prejudice.
Camp Vught National Memorial
The only official SS-concentration camp in the occupied part of WWII and includes the Children’s Memorial, the crematorium and a reconstructed prisoners’ barracks. Groups can also benefit from the invaluable opportunity to meet a concentration camp survivor or a member of the survivor’s family at Camp Vught.
This large, beautiful synagogue was built by the Sephardic community in the 17th century and is still used today.
Dutch Resistance Museum
Tracing the complex reaction to occupation as it evolved through the war, this excellent museum covers the difficult topics of collaboration and resistance in a thought-provoking and even-handed way.
Corrie Ten Boom House
The Ten Boom family house in the beautiful historical town of Haarlem acted as a safe house for Jews and others during WWII, and now stands as a museum to the life and work of the Ten Boom family, allowing groups to explore human rights and responsibilities in the light of religious faith and principles.
Our Lord in the Attic
One of the oldest and most remarkable museums in Amsterdam. Behind the characteristic facade of the house by the canal lies a largely original 17th century home and a complete hidden church. This hidden church ‘in the attic’ was built during the Reformation, when Catholics were forbidden to hold public services.
